The Alberta Cup aids in the preparation, evaluation and identification of potential players for Hockey Alberta’s Team Alberta program, with more than 700 players annually trying out for 160 spots (20 positions on each of the eight zone teams).
The Alberta Cup is a comprehensive and unique program, and an absolute grassroots program where every bantam-aged player, regardless of experience or community size, has the opportunity to try out for his Zone team.
In addition to player development, the Alberta Cup also features opportunities for administrators, referees, coaches, therapists and equipment managers to be identified for potential positions at higher level events, such as the World U17 Hockey Challenge and Canada Winter Games.
